I like static work for developing stability, so having to absorb forces while in a static position strikes me as a good idea. My concern with the exercises in that video is that isometric training really only improves strength in the position worked--so for the ab one, that single exercise may have limited applicability. I like russian twist type work, hollow rock, L-sit, etc.
